Tanks in Action Crew Day

Open to just one participant per day (see selected dates), the Tanks in Action Crew Day Experience will place you behind the scenes in The Tank Museum Workshop.

Sold out for 2018. Please contact events@tankmuseum.org to be put on the 2019 waiting list.

Our Tanks in Action displays are 30 minute demonstrations of tank mobility, where our visitors see a range of armoured fighting vehicles roll in our Arena. With expert commentary and life-like explosions, we explain how tanks have evolved and how they are used in battle.  

In this experience, you’ll be put to work alongside our Workshop Team as they prepare for and perform a Tanks in Action display.

You’ll help ‘first parade’ the vehicles to be used – and assist our crews in carrying out mechanical preparation and maintenance work.

Then, you’ll climb into the commander’s seat of a main battle tank as it takes part in the Tanks in Action Display for a thrilling ride – in front of an audience! 

Following lunch, you’ll be helping clean down the tanks before putting them away – having ensured they are ready for action the following day. This will be followed by a tour of the workshop facilities and our Vehicle Conservation Center.

Your Ticket Includes:

  • An annual Pass to The Tank Museum – revisit again from free whenever you like! *
  • Refreshments and lunch.
  • Complimentary Tank Museum Souvenir Guide
